every storm (runs out of rain).

rainy day at the downtown utsa campus.

there's a gary allan song i've been hooked on lately.  it's called "every storm (runs out of rain)" and it's about keeping your head up when shit hits the fan.  since the very first time i heard it, the song has served as a reminder that life is an endless roller coaster, with constant ups and downs, and every low point will be followed with a high point.

i've held on to the that, in the past few weeks.  i've dealt with some things that have scared me shitless (pardon my french) and also left me feeling very, very angry and empty.  but i'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  i'm moving past those feelings and onto something much deeper and happier.

i think it's fitting that the weather for the past week has been gloomy, and now rainy.  i feel as though everything is being washed away and in the days following this nasty weather, everything will feel fresh and new.  something good to look forward to. other news:

my dad bought a treadmill for our house.  i've enjoyed using it the past couple of days, and getting that tight, sore feeling back into my muscles.  it's been a really long time since i've exercised, and i'm doing a 5k at the end of this month, so getting back into running is exciting for me.  i'm easing into it, because it's been so long, but i can't wait until i can run a full mile without cramping up or gasping for air.  that's my goal right now.  just one mile.
